Petit garcon

I was asked to make a welcome baby boy card for a French couple.

The background paper is K & Co cuddly friends - the moon is a die cut from the matching sheet, raised up with 3D foam (although you can't see that here). The sentiment was computer generated and printed on to a scrap piece of My Mind's Eye paper - this was raised up with 3D foam as well.

This is what is printed on the insert:
